Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video How to remember what you read, part of Improving Your Memory.
- In this video, we're going to discuss…a reading strategy that will allow you…to remember more of what you read.…This three step strategy is called…the multiple-reading process.…It has a preview, an overview, and a read.…The preview is the first step where you read…the introduction and conclusion to your text.…The overview is the second step…where you read all the headings…and bold-faced words or, if you don't have headings,…the first sentence of each paragraph.…This leads us naturally to our third…and most important step, the read.…In other words, let's read the material…that we've been getting familiar with.…
Think about the way most people read.…A lot of people simply start from the beginning…and read in a very linear way all the way to the end.…But you don't have to read all information this way.…In fact, reading this way is part of…the reason why people read slowly.…If you don't know what to expect from the material,…you're going to have to read it slower.…Imagine the alternative if you start…by reading the intro and conclusion…
